American Legion Post 410 in Lakehills held a retirement ceremony for a number of American flags on Flag Day, June 14. The flags were inspected and accepted for retirement after their honorable service. Following the singing of the National Anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag and the reading of a poem honoring the flag Sgt-At-Arms Jack Trenkelbach prepared the flags for burning. Anyone wishing to properly dispose of their weathered and worn American flags may contact the Legion Post for more information.
